His occupation is good and necessary for society, but it's also one in which liars, cheats, and thieves seem to flourish. Vulgar and blasphemous language typically fills the air of Bill's workplace.

Service Makes Us More Like Jesus
Remember what Jesus said of Himself: "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45).

This deed was no novelty, it characterized His life. Although Jesus was God, He was also the humblest, most servant-hearted man who ever lived.
